Matures in 55 days: 1oz per 100' row.
Heirloom, non hybrid variety. The roots are sweet, have a dark golden-orange color that turns golden-yellow when cooked. Excellent pickled, boiled, steamed, stir fried, or grated raw into salads. They retain their sweetness very well. The flesh does not bleed like red beets making them a lot less messy to eat. The immature leaves are an attractive green color with yellow stems and can be used raw in salads. More mature tops have a mild flavor when cooked as greens or sauteed. They are tender and mild flavored even when large.
